    Lightloads cobbles delivery Jersey Channel IslandsThree weeks later and yet another Lightloads.je shipment of cobbles is all sold out.  I advised in my last post that they were likely to sell quickly, as indeed have the sleepers. My suppliers in France are closed down for August holidays, but I have another 50 tonnes on order for early September.  I still have about 150 oak sleepers left, but have sold more than half my stock in the last 3 weeks.

    Of note: my last shipment of sleepers were from a different mill that I shall continue to use.  Buyers will find that these have nicely square cut ends and are of uniform thickness as a result of the mill having an advanced computerised saw.  Aside from that, the smaller size are now 100mm longer than previously and for the same money! (and longer than others of the same section supplied by my competitors).   To clarify: Large size 130 x 220 x 2.6m   £31 each Smaller size 120 x 200 x 2.6m £26 each Any purchase of 10 or more sleepers attracts a £2 discount on each, there is no GST added and includes free delivery to site.
